I'm afraid that I've gotten myself into a dilemma. I'll be moving in with my fiance the first week of October (that's when we're getting married :D ) and of course, Josie's coming too. That will put both Ryan and Josie in the same house...two puppies...born three weeks apart...of the opposite sex. My fiance and I both intend on getting our babies spayed and neutered as soon as we can. I've read that those procedures can be done as early as 8 weeks, but our local vet absolutely will not do them until they're six months old.

So what I'm wondering is around what time do Chi girls normally go in heat? I've been told to let Josie have one heat before having her spayed--is that true or just an old wives tale?

Just wondering since I have no idea how we're going to handle this problem when it arises.

Thank you SO much for your wonderful answer! :D Thanks a lot for posting those percentages. I'd heard the spaying-after-first-heat rumor from just about everyone I knew with a female pup, so I wasn't really sure what to believe. Thanks again (can't tell you enough!).
